Connectivity: The FCC is looking to bring high-speed wireless Internet accessibility to airplanes, and is toying with the ideas of allowing passengers to talk on their cell phones during flights.

The wireless Internet is obviously popular, but so far I have heard mostly negative comments about the cell phones. People really hate to hear other people gabbing on the phone, it seems.

But why? I've never understood this. I don't talk on my cell phone much, but it doesn't bother me to hear someone else's conversation. And it's not like there's no talking allowed on the plane. If this goes through, it would be similar to listening to two passengers talking to each other. Except, with the cell phones, you would only hear half the conversation.
